CEOs face many challenges. They must focus and motivate their organizations to capitalize on emerging opportunities. They must continually invest scarce resources in the pursuit of promising – though uncertain – investments and business activities. They must manage the business in the face of constantly changing circumstances. And as they do all of these things, they must simultaneously be in a position to confidently assure investors, directors and other stakeholders that their organizations manage risk in today’s demanding global marketplace.
